So-so entry in the world of romantic comedies
9 February 2004 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

BJ (Bo Derek) is a rich Texas entrepreneur with an interest in investing abroad. Her sites are set on owning a small chocolate truffle factory in France. Jetting off to the candy-making town, BJ meets an attractive man, Eric (Robert Hays), at the French airport and spends the rest of the day with him. As it turns out, he is the chauffeur and confidante of the chocolate factory's owner but, he does not disclose this information to her. Will BJ be able to buy the factory and will she still be attracted to Eric when she learns the truth?

This attempt to star the beautiful Derek in a romantic comedy is only partially successful. She is attractive and works well with Hays but she doesn't have the thespian skills to elevate the mediocre script. The two French actors who are cast as the factory owner and his estranged wife, however, are adorable and add much to the enjoyment of the viewer. The French setting, too, works to the film's advantage. Nevertheless, only serious fans of Miss Derek or of romantic comedies in general may be interested in a showing of this film.
